Ginger Carrot Soup

Happy first day of fall everyone! The weather has been gorgeous lately…just sunny enough to feel like summer, but with a slight cool breeze to keep you from sweating nonstop throughout the day. It’s awesome. I’m trying to enjoy it as much as possible even though I’ve been incredibly busy. I don’t remember if I...
Spinach and Chickpea Soup with Lemon

Spinach and Chickpea Soup with Lemon

I worked from 9 am to 9 pm on Sunday. No matter how much you like your job (I’m still on the fence about mine), working that long always sucks. By the end of the day you feel like your body is running on fumes and your brain stopped running a good 5 hours ago....
Roasted Root Vegetable Soup

Roasted Root Vegetable Soup

Ah, fall…the time of year when I bask in the glory of roasted vegetables as much as I can. Despite the fact that it’s been in the 70s for the last two days, you can really feel the season in the air. It’s crisp and chill with a sense of hustle and bustle everywhere you...
Traditional Lentil Soup

Traditional Lentil Soup

After a few gorgeous end-of-summer days, NJ was struck by some nasty rain and wind. It was such a bummer (I really wanted to go outside and play!) but the weather ended up being a blessing in disguise. I was stuck inside, so naturally I turned to food to cure my boredom. Because of the...
Garden Gazpacho

Garden Gazpacho

  Fresh summer produce always makes my mouth water. The smell, taste, and colors just scream “I’m delicious!”. Since almost everything in my garden and at the market has been so perfect this season, I really haven’t wanted to mess with it at all. I mean, if its not broke, why fix it. Because of...
Roasted Carrot & Cauliflower Soup

Roasted Carrot & Cauliflower Soup

Roasting vegetables is incredibly easy – toss in a little oil then slide into a toasty oven. Done. Simple. But don’t let the simplicity fool you, the smell and taste of roasted vegetables can’t be beat. They get sweetly smoky while keeping just the right amount of crunch. Because the flavors concentrate in the oven,...
Curry Lentil Soup

Curry Lentil Soup

It was very windy this past weekend, wasn’t it? After a short spring-feeling week, the chill set back in and Mother Nature reminded us that winter isn’t over yet! Not wanting to face the cold, I raided our pantry and decided to make a lentil soup with a kicked up Indian flavor profile. Cayenne, cinnamon,...
Potato Soup

Potato Soup

I like to make potato soup out of potatoes that are about to go bad…I don’t know why, but it always happens this way. We had a bag sitting around, so my mom suggested I make a batch so I could show everyone online how to do it! A lot of potato soups I’ve had...
Creamy Asparagus Soup

Creamy Asparagus Soup

Simple soups are often the best soups out there. This recipe is great, fresh tasting, and it will surprise you how easy it is to make. Remember to snap the woody ends off of the asparagus – when you boil these ends, you’ll make an asparagus broth that adds a lot of flavor. I use...
Chicken and Rice Soup

Chicken and Rice Soup

Soup is comforting. When we’re sick or feeling down, we often turn to a bowl of soup for nourishment. The steam and flavors relax us, and make everything seem more at ease. Making soup from scratch is 100% worth it. The flavors are more intense, veggies are still toothsome, and you can control the amount...
Black Bean Tomato Chunk Soup

Black Bean Tomato Chunk Soup

When you’re a bit under the weather, what food do you always turn to? Soup. When you want something easy and comforting, what food do we turn to? Soup! Because soup is so versatile, tasty, and easy to make, I figured I would share my black bean tomato chunk soup with everyone! The beans give...
Pea Soup

Pea Soup

I really love peas. It’s just a simple and fresh vegetable that you can use all year round, whether it be in a salad, soup, pasta, whatever. I always use frozen peas because the canned kind is too salty, mushy, and dull for my taste. Frozen peas are still vibrantly green and tasty. This soup...
